    Johan, Nice. Based on the photos the cloak/cape could use more contrast, especially highlights.~Gary

    Excellent work Johan...........I too found fitment problems with this figure when I dry fitted all the parts. A shame Andrea's figures suffer this in their large mm figs.

    Hi all,

    Your comments are all much appreciated.

    Gary, your comment on the cloak causes me even more headaches than the fitting of parts. It's an extremely difficult colour to work with. It's true that the lighting of the photo diminishes the highlights on the cloak a fair bit, but I have to admit that I also have some doubts about it. The problem is that my clubmembers say that I should leave the cloak as it is. I'm in a dilemma now, because I fear to ruin the figure's cloak by trying to highlight any further, having to work wet on dry :( .

    Guy, indeed it's been said before that Andrea suffers from this problem. I think I won't be bying their figures in the near future as I hate too much preparation on a figure. It's the painting that I like!

    Best regards

    Johan ;)

    Hi Johan excelent work.I have the same opinion of you with the prices of figures of large scale i thinck that , the manufacturers can work more and made pieces very easy to asembly.I like to paint not asembly.
    What do you thinck?

    How do you paint the protections of legs?.

    I use inker prints and you?

    Regards Jose Luis

    Beautiful job. I love the muted tones. Absolutely first rate.

    Andrea seems to be getting less concerned about ease of assembly than they are about just getting product out. That's a shame.

    Thanks again for your nice comments, Jose Luis and Bill.

    Best regards.

    For now, leav it as it is. Bring it next thuesday and we talk it over. In my opinion you are a very, very good painter of the figures that you are involved with the Romans.
    I've never seen a bad painted Roman out of your hands. I think you must set your figures in 2007 in the categorie Masters.

    Really nice looking figure ! I really have'nt found a Roman figure that I could pass up and have done some of them multiple times, but somehow I must've missed this one. I'm gonna have to get him. As for cleanup of figures (flash removal etc.) I've actually hired a teenager (have better eyesight) to do the metal figures for me. I get to paint and leave the otherwise tedious work for them. Works for me!

    Many thanks for your comments, but you do me too much honour. Well first see what 2006 brings on the matter of recognitions on the contest tables.

    You're acting as the great painters in history. Leaving the dirty work for the pupils and in the end walk away with all the honours :lol: . Nice idea, though!

    Johan ;)
  16. CorySF Guest

    Johan, I realized I needed help in that area when I painted over a flash line on a 54mm figure that I missed even after I primed it.
